Dear All. I have enjoyed reading about classmates and their lives. It appears that most folks are now retired, While I retired from the Court of Appeals in May 2013, I do some mediation and arbitration work through a law firm in Lincoln where I am "Of Counsel."  Between that, the grandchildren, golf, the gym, and general "old guy puttering around" the days seem to disappear quickly. Maggie and I are blessed with good health, and two grandchildren without shouting distance..

I appreciate all the work that Larry Richards has done to round up everyone who can be found, and provide a forum to exchange some information, as well as that of the committee. I am sure it will be an enjoyable weekend.. It is with considerable sadness that I contemplate those who have died, a good number of my close friends from my Gering days are on that list. I have very vivid memories of all of them, and I am sure their absence will be felt next weekend. But, we all know by now that life is fragile, and that we have now arrived at the point where every day should be viewed as a gift.

As I suspect is true of many, my parents are both gone, and I have no relation whatsoever left in Western Nebraska. Thus, I have not been there in many years. And, it turns out that other obligations prevent me from making the trip for the reunion. But, I did want to thank those who have worked long and hard on this, let folks know that this process has brought back many fond memories of my youth in Gering, (and a few not so fond)  and that I wish everyone well, and hope that you who attend have a rewarding and fun weekend.  My regards to all, Dick Sievers.  .

Hi Dick,

I'm really sorry you can't make the reunion!  I missed the last two reunions, and was looking forward to catching up.  If you are ever in Northern Colorado please look us up.
